This years Two Fly Tournament brought together anglers and McKenzie River Trust supporters in a friendly competition to raise money for habitat rehabilitation. Seven teams competed for prizes including Echo Spey Rods, Redington Waders, Rio Lines, and of course bragging rights. $5000 was handed over to the Trust, and a good time was had by all.
Special thanks to the guides who donated their time to the event, without them the event doesn’t exist.
